Salt Halted at Ningaloo!

For the last four years the Conservation Council of WA, Kailis and Recfishwest have been working together to fight a giant salt mine that would have devastated the eastern Exmouth Gulf and the prawn fisheries that depend on it. The gulf ecosystem is closely linked to that of world heritage nominated Ningaloo Reef. More information at www.haltthesalt.org.au.

    • Shame isn’t it. Got a bit more coverage when an official announcement was made, but still nothing spectacular. Guess that is why it was done this way, neither the company nor our pro-development Government wanted a big fuss about a project leaving WA – regardless of how much environmental destruction it would have caused.
